FL: Lauderhill man gets five years in ID theft, tax fraud scheme

There’s another update to a case noted previously on this blog. Wayne Roustan reports:

Andrew Ware, 27, got nearly six years in prison Friday, followed by three years probation after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft, prosecutors said.

He was part of a group that submitted fraudulent tax refund claims for $137,132 and made $49,561 in unauthorized credit and debit card purchases, evidence showed.

His cousin Latonya Ware, 27, worked for a medical services provider and used the personal information of patients to file fraudulent tax returns, prosecutors said.
